Models for Peugeot’s brand new 508 have actually been spotted undergoing screening before it goes on sale in 2019. These test cars, displayed in images courtesy of Car Scoops, use body panels lifted from the 308 SW to disguise the new car’s styling but it’s expected to draw inspiration from the Exalt Principle.
2019 Peugeot 508 Styling
The brand-new 2019 Peugeot 508 is anticipated to sport attractive styling influenced by the recent Peugeot Exalt Concept. This slinky four-door saloon featured an unusual forward-swept grille and complex chrome detailing that might all be rollovered to the production model. Its two-tone paintjob might be dropped in favour of a less divisive colour scheme, however, while the Exalt’s flattened roofline and huge alloy wheels are expected to be modified prior to the 508 appears in dealers, too.
2019 Peugeot 508 Interior
The lengthened 308 SW body panels fitted to this test car suggest the new 508 might be larger than the outgoing model and might boast a more roomy boot and greater levels of legroom. Its interior could draw from both the Exalt Concept’s and 5008 SUV’s cabins and feature a comparable small guiding wheel, high-mounted instruments and a wise row of toggle turns on the centre console. Sadly, the Exalt’s walnut control panel and uncommon square wheel aren’t anticipated to feature in the finished 508.
2019 Peugeot 508 Engines and Driving
The 2019 Peugeot 508 is anticipated to make use of a comparable range of engines as the 3008 SUV. The most economical choice could be Peugeot’s upcoming 98hp 1.6-litre diesel engine that must return more than 70mpg while a choice of more effective diesel motor varying from a 118hp 1.6-litre system to a 178hp 2.0-litre should also be readily available. Gas fans must be offered the option of either a revvy 1.2-litre three-cylinder system– perfect for buzzing around town– or a more effective 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that’ll be more comfy at motorway speeds.
2019 Peugeot 508 Price and Release Date
The unfinished state of this test car suggests the brand-new 2019 Peugeot 508 will not hit UK roadways until as late as 2019. When it does, it’s expected to set you back approximately the like the outgoing model across the range. Entry-level cars could cost from around ₤ 24,000 while top-spec models might carry a price tag of more than ₤ 32,000.
